council for last month and to our colleague in nigeria and her entire team. here we are once again, grappling with the ukrainian crisis. every time this council is divided, this unfortunate country is steeped in anarchy. the east of the ukraine, roofs -- groups are aggressively taking over cities. it's not really a crowd that supports this effort but just a few hundred demonstrators. heavy weaponry which excludes the possibility of any sympathetic members of the crowd, russian officers on local television, the taking of hostages. all of whom are being held and allegations have increasingly been proven of forced disappearances. these thugs have refused to implement that agreement which was supposed to be the restoration of the ukrainian state on its own territory. and what is ukraine doing? after having shown great restraint that no other state would've been able to show, in the face of organized attacks, it was supported and justified by a neighboring country and decided to use its army and police against the armed groups which are establishing security at the expense of the people

like to once again our gratitude to the presidency of nigeria for last month's efforts. i'd like to thank the undersecretary-general, mr. feldman, for his briefing on the situation in ukraine and recent events. madam president, to say that we're meeting a second time in a week once again to discuss the alarming situation in ukraine is a demonstration of the fact that this council has a responsibility to express itself. in the case of argentina, to reiterate our views about what is happening with regard to the bitter confrontations due to the escalation of tensions. news coming from slovanski would appear daily confrontations are reality and there is serious risk of spiral of violence with serious consequences for ukraine, the region and the international community. argentina condemns violent acts recorded in the east of ukraine and which have left the loss of human life in its wake. obviously the voices of members of this council have not been listened to or heard, nor the voice of the secretary-general or the international community. calling on all parties to work to calm the si

of this polio -- nigeria, afghanistan and pakistan. the success of the polio vaccine showed the public what medical research could explish encourage -- accomplish and encourage. yesterday, chairman mikulski of the senate appropriations committee, had a hearing on research and we had some great witnesses. among them, dr. francis collins, who is the head of the national institutenationalinstitutes of . they came to talk about america's investment in research and innovation. you would think that with the success of the salk polio vaccine and all the other things that have followed, that america would have learned a valuable lesson about this investment. but, sadly, today, some 60 years after the discovery of the salk polio vaccine, we are not making progress as we should. in fact, in some respects, we are falling behind. because of our failure to adequately fund the national institutes of health over the last 10 or 12 years, we've seen a 20% decline in the awards for medical research. 20% of worthy research projects have not been funded because we have not put the money down to make it happen.
